Progress????

"A goal without a plan is just a wish"
 by Antoine de Saint-Exupery

I've made a fabric decision for my 100th quilt, I think.

 Chateau Rouge and Rouenneries Deux by French General for Moda have the look and feel I'm hoping to go for.   I think that yellow/maze color in Chateau Rouge will be a nice change of pace and give me a little different look from the red and gray quilts I've made in the past, I hope.

Here's hoping I'm very virtuous this week!

and finally,

  1. Oh I love that quote! Can't wait to see what you do with the Chateau Rouge and Rouenneries Deux by French General for Moda.

  2. I love that quote! I'm sure if he had known quilters he would have come up with a whole pile of other quotes! If he met me, he might think up a quote along the lines of "why don't you actually make a bag with one of the patterns you already have instead of buying yet another bag pattern?".

    Really looking forward to see what quilt pattern you choose for your French General. I have lots of Rouenneries Deux and have trouble choosing a pattern that suits it because it basically only has the reds and the neutrals. I am going to take some inspiration from your 100th quilt!

  4. I thought of you often yesterday. We are football fanatics, too. So sorry that the season for your Colts ended. I don't know what DH and I will do when the season is over:)

    I'm with you on French General fabrics. Each line is better than the next. Have you seen Esprit de Noel? Looking forward to your project 100! Take care!

  6. Auntia was so disappointed yesterday when the Colts lost - she was hoping that Manning would get to face his old team (and, quite possibly, have a better chance of beating them) ... i know what you will be doing on saturday afternoon - i've already been warned that we HAVE to be back from Saturday Sampler in time to put a pizza in the oven for the game ... anywho, i can tell that this 100th quilt is gonna be something extra special - when Thelma unties a fat quarter bundle, wait for all hell to break loose!!!

  9. Happy New Year and congrats on the final approach to your 100th quilt milestone! This will be a special project indeed! I love that first quote because it says it all for me about quilts and life.

    I've loved all your red and gray quilts and became a recent fan of yellow so I too am looking forward to see what you make. Have fun!

  11. I love your past quilts and was wondering how you bought fabric if you don't know what you will make with it? I have tried that in the past to only e frustrated that I don't have enough of something. Do you buy yardage along with the FQ bundles and 10" squares? I think this frustration is what made into a really scrappy quilter as I don't have to have enough of anything I can just add to. But since I love how your quilts turn out I would love to know how you work.

  17. Hi Thelma, I am so excited to see what your 100th Lifetime Quilt will be. I adore your fabric choice, I've not yet had the chance to use French General, but I keep hoping I'll be able to pick some up one day, I love all their collections. Okay, now, on to pattern choices...or are you going venture out there and design your own??? That would be truly awesome. Big Hugs...
